Thomas Fogarty Winery was founded in 1978 by inventor Dr. Thomas Fogarty and winemaker Michael Martella. Dr Fogarty’s penchant for innovative thought and Martella’s viticulture instincts allowed them to lead the development of the cool Skyline Ridge area; true pioneers in one of California’s premiere Pinot Noir and Chardonnay regions.
Today this area boasts the most prestigious planting of these two varieties in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Few wine regions on earth can match the climates, soils and vertigo-inducing views of the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation. Situated at 2000 feet above sea level, the Fogarty winery offers a rare confluence of great vineyard sites and sweeping panoramas of the San Francisco Bay area.
Celebrating over 31 years of winemaking, Thomas Fogarty Winery & Vineyards greets visitors with great wines and gracious hospitality.
We invite you to visit and taste our craft.
"There is no doubt in my mind the Santa Cruz Mountains is the greatest
and most overlooked terroir in the United States. Period." Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate
